Story time at KiDeens is interwoven into the syllabus and appear at various stages in the lessons planned.
Listening to stories encourages children to use their imagination and immerse themselves completely in another world, whether it’s funny, exciting, or a little bit scary! This ability to create a “movie” in their mind will help them with comprehension as they learn to read – and will help them come up with ideas when they begin writing.
Stories give children a strong connection to their family and their heritage. Stories may provide them with a connection to a place that is far away or people they would like to know better.
Stories are a rich way to strengthen your child’s language skills and vocabulary, whether it’s in a first or second language. Tell your stories in the language that is most comfortable to you.
Storytelling enforces reading skills by helping children become familiar with different parts of a story, such as characters, sequence, and the plot.
Telling stories can be a gentle way to share a lesson or talk about a difficult topic with your child. These story sessions translate to life skills at a later time in Primary school.
